Tuesday 9 November
Join us online for the annual commemoration of Kristallnacht, with the theme Broken Glass, Unbroken Spirit.
This commemoration, we will honour Holocaust survivor Eddie Jaku Z”L OAM, who recently, sadly passed away. On Kristallnacht, Eddie was beaten by Nazi soldiers in his home and transported to Buchenwald Concentration Camp.
On 9-10 November 1938, Nazi forces destroyed over 200 synagogues, damaged 7,000 Jewish-owned businesses, arrested 30,000 Jews, and murdered 91 Jews in Germany, Austria and the Sudetenland. That night was a sinister warning of the onset of the Holocaust.
There will also be a special performance by the Sydney Children’s Choir, who will sing “Miracles”, a song composed by Sam Weiss with words from Eddie’s memoir “The Happiest Man on Earth”.
